Theme 1 – Structural and Serviceability Performance
Project T1-1 – Refined Structural Analysis and Design of Timber Systems
PI: Thomas Tannert
A preferred floor design in CLT structures is a flat-plate system where the CLT panels rest directly on walls or columns without a beam framing system. This sub-project will investigate the structural performance of flat-plate floor systems in mass timber construction. Design guidelines for such a floor system in mass timber construction will be developed.
